Glen Burnie Social Security Disability Lawyer

Many employees are injured in the workplace. These people qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. But then there are those who are so seriously injured that they qualify as being disabled. They are injured for a long time or even permanently.

In these cases, the workers will likely qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. SSDI can help replace the wages of those who are unable to work due to a disability. However, the process is not easy. There are a lot of complexities involved and denials are common.

Want to improve your chances of approval? Contact a Glen Burnie Social Security disability lawyer from the Law Offices of Steinhardt, Siskind and Lieberman, LLC and let us assess your case.

What Does SSDI Do?

SSDI is intended to help individuals who are unable to work due to a disability maintain a basic standard of living and access necessary medical care. SSDI is a federal insurance program in the United States that provides income support to people who are unable to work due to a qualifying disability. SSDI is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

To qualify for SSDI benefits, individuals must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets the SSA’s definition of disability. The disability must be expected to last for at least one year or result in death.

SSDI provides financial assistance to eligible individuals and their dependents, including monthly cash payments and access to Medicare after a waiting period. The amount of the monthly payment is based on the individual’s past earnings covered by Social Security.

Steps to Take

Do you qualify for SSDI? If so, get the process started with these steps:

  • Prepare documentation. Gather all necessary documents including your Social Security number, birth certificate, medical records, and documentation of your work history.
  • Complete the application. Whether you apply online, by phone, or in person, you will need to provide detailed information about your medical condition, work history, and other relevant details. Be prepared to answer questions about your medical treatment, medications, and how your condition affects your ability to work.
  • Submit supporting documents. Along with your application, you will need to submit supporting documents such as medical records, doctors’ statements, and employment history.
  • Follow up. After submitting your application, follow up with the SSA to ensure they have received all necessary documents and information. You may also need to attend medical evaluations or additional interviews as part of the application process.
  • Wait for a decision. The SSA will review your application and medical evidence to determine if you qualify for SSDI benefits. This process can take several months or even as long as a year if there is a huge backlog, so be patient.
